• Who here belongs to BRAT?

    I do!:)

    Vegas


  • Me too!

    I wish I could do more to help with BRAT but there are never any runs going through my area and DH won't let me foster because I would want to keep 'em!


  • I do…work Wa, Or and where every in the PNW anyone needs help with b's.


  • I do not belong to BRAT - I did at one time but I have not for many years. I do rescue either on my own or through the BCOW or other regional basenji clubs.


  • Well, anyone who does rescue is a friend of mine…no matter what group they work with.
    Brat has so much education info on line.
    I do find that very helpful for a first time owner.


  • I do home visits and have been asked to be a screener. Will be volunteering in Chattanooga TN for the Paws in the Park in October for BRAT!!!!


  • I am registered with BRAT but never got contacted. I got sick of waiting-it has been since May so I have branched out to anyone that is on the rescue contact list that Tanza gave out.


  • We too are registered with BRAT.


  • Actually, I don't know if I "belong" to BRAT? I have never paid any dues, I don't know if my name is still on anybody's list…but I used to be involved in what was called Region 6? I don't know if there is still a Region 6?....but I try to make myself available if a dog needs to be pulled out of shelter in our area, transport, or foster for very short amount of time if a local person needs to get rid of their B NOW!


  • I am!
    I have done 2 runs one for the Mo puppymill Lady and the 5 pups from Indy to Dayton.
    And one for a pretty girl named Stella (forget where she was going) From Lafayette to Indy.
    I enjoy it.
    I have cats and a small home, so my fostering ability is limited.
    I did help BRAT out by adopting:p


  • Brat does need help…I am surprised that you who signed up weren't contacted.
    There is no fees involved...no dues or the like...
    But they are working to revamp the communication between folks who have too much to do and those who want to help.
    So, if you want to, recontact them.
    I can give you the site if you wish.
    We have so many dogs this year...lots of puppies even!


  • I just signed up to be involved in BRAT. I can't wait to get started helping out.


  • What area are you in?
    Do you have b's??


  • @sharronhurlbut:

    I'm in Knoxville, TN and I have a 1.5 year old basenji named Manning.


  • There are lots of folks working to help b's in the southern part of the country.
    I am sure more hands will make this work easier.
    Do you have a photo of you b?
    Where did you get him?

    Here is a picture of Manning, his adopted sister Rascal and his nemesis Freya(the cat) last year. Manning came from Tad Brooks at Meisterhaus. He actually has a half brother, myran, in Sweden who is on the forum.

  • I can't believe you have a CAT in this photo.
    I had cats before b's and there is NO way they would have gone to have their photos taken…
    Well, if we used duct tape maybe...NOPE, not even then.
    Great photos.
    Nice looking animal family you have there.

    Haha…they only look well behaved! What you can't see is the blue leash tying Rascal to the photography table and Manning hitting the kitty in the head with his paw. After what seemed like a million takes later...the perfect pic! Thanks anyway though. 🙂

    I signed in May and got an email but was told there are very few B's in this area. We did apply to adopt one here in Columbus but she was concerned with the fact we had cats. She said she would contact me to get me started in fostering but she also said she was really busy so we are still waiting. That was last week though.


  • I have a question, is there a Brat chat list? I know there is the bratchat emails, but a forum like this would be wonderful. something general and then broken up into areas (location, fostering, home inspections…)
    Maybe on Yahoo that would be open to members and moderated somewhat. That way everyone that would want to help would have access to information.
    I get most of my information from the Brat coordinator that helped me adopt Squiggy.
    The brat chat, which I just started getting did have some information about a dog run that was asking for volunteers for this weekend.
    But it would be nice to have a set up like this.
